Celebrating 50 years of Theatre in Education - Inspiring Curiosity

“Inspiring Curiosity”

Belgrade Theatre Drama Workshops

2015 sees the 50th Anniversary of Theatre in Education (TiE) at the Belgrade Theatre Coventry, marking 50 years since we established a company dedicated to using theatrical performance and drama workshops to explore issues of cultural, social, political and moral significance as part of a free service to schools and the young people of Coventry. TiE encourages children to investigate challenging situations for themselves, to search to find the answer, rather than be given it on a plate.

The TiE movement spread to theatres across the UK, and then to broader contexts across the globe, inspiring a wide range of participatory theatre with children and young people.

To mark this significant anniversary, the Belgrade is arranging a year of events to celebrate and promote theatre made for and with young people.

“I support drama in schools because theatre arts are the quickest and best ways of developing all the skills that a 21st Century economy needs; innovation, creativity, ethics, imagination, humanity.”
